Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical journalist who had a panic attack on live national television, which led him to try something he otherwise never would have considered: meditation. He went on to write the bestselling book, 10% Happier. On this show, Dan talks with eminent meditation teachers, top scientists, and even the odd celebrity. Guests include everyone from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Brené Brown to Karamo from Queer Eye. On some episodes, Dan ventures into the deep end of the pool, covering subjects such as enlightenment and psychedelics. On other episodes, it’s science-based techniques for issues such as anxiety, productivity, and relationships. Dan's approach is seemingly modest, but secretly radical: happiness is a skill you can train, just like working your bicep in the gym. Your progress may be incremental at first, but like any good investment, it compounds over time.

Dan is a master interviewer and an authority on his subject of everything mental health, his self effacing no nonsense style impressive and revealing. Episode 357 with Ellen Hendriksen on Social Anxiety a master class. Thank you.
One of the best
I’ve been listening to this podcast since episode one was released. It’s introduced me to many ideas and wonderful teachers. I think those complaining that the podcast has become to ‘woke’ perhaps don’t understand that collective liberation is at the core of Buddhism. Thank you Dan and Dan’s guests for providing a brilliant insight into the practice and principles of meditation.

Congratulations Dan Harris, I found out about you recently from the show called the minimalist and you’re interview and statement caught my attention! I subscribed to your podcast and I listen as much as I can to it, started with the very first ones! Congratulations in your awakening, in your journey you’re a very inspiring person! I love your shows and your guests, they bring a lot with each time and I learn something new wach time! I am from Romania and I live in Scotland, entered the path of the spiritual journey in 2004 and with your show I went back to meditation that I must say lost it along the way! Keep up the good work to be a source of inspiration for younger generations!
